Some parents of a hair particle system go underneath faces

I've got a problem where some particles of my hair particle system go underneath certain faces.

The normals of those faces are faced correctly and the same way as all other faces.

Vertex paint is relatively smooth and does not have random faces not selected.

Changing the seed number does not make the problem go away/change to different faces.
